Phoebe Hackman 1 week ago on Two Steamboat men charged with marijuana felonies

Just had my first post removed "by the site staff for violation of the usage agreement." Please tell me what the violation was, lest I err again. Videos are allowed, but not gifs? I'm confused ....


Phoebe Hackman 1 week ago on Kenneth Finn and Bob Doyle: Pot policy harmful

Ever notice how so many people who write these opinion pieces never join in the conversation and defend their positions? Do you think it's because they don't want to ... or can't?

I'm calling this one a hit-and-run. Movin' on.


Phoebe Hackman 1 week, 1 day ago on Some downtown Steamboat residents fighting to silence early morning street sweeping

I heard a few weeks ago that Carl's can no longer play live music because of these same knuckleheads. They have also complained about the snow plows and trash trucks. These people are oh-so-delicate. I can't wait until they start in on the train......


Phoebe Hackman 1 week, 5 days ago on John Mertz: Suffering with dignity

Mr. Mertz, you'll have to find something other than "dignity" on which to base your argument. There is no dignity in having to have your diaper changed because you're too doped up from painkillers to get to the bathroom. There is no dignity in needing enemas to even go to the bathroom because the painkillers have caused unrelenting constipation. I hope that's not too graphic for you; it's reality. There is no dignity in being unable to keep food down or not being able to eat at all because your organs are shutting down. There is no dignity in people talking around you and making your decisions for you, as if you are a child. You would make someone suffer needlessly just to support your own beliefs, yet you want to prevent other people from following their own beliefs. When the end of your life comes, you go right ahead and suffer, if you feel there's some benefit to be gained. But what other people do is, frankly, none of your business. Life is really, really hard. Death shouldn't have to be.
